The Constitutional Monarchy of Nyctia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Helianthys the Farseer with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.164 billion Nyctians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bubo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Nyctian economy, worth 299 trillion tytoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 138,300 tytoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 402,275 per year while the poor average 37,614, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities, weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyctia's national animal is the Eurasian eagle owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nyctia is ranked 136,375th in the world and 6,659th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 25.14 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
